One of the most important events for parents on school council is the association Annual General Meeting (AGM) held in conjunction with the ASCA School Councils Conference.
The 2021 Annual General Meeting is on April 25, 2021 (to be held online).
The Alberta School Councils’ Association (ASCA) is pleased to present the 2021 annual conference and general meeting ONLINE, utilizing Zoom video conferencing and the EventMobi web platform (desktop and mobile applications). Suitable for desktop, laptops, tablets, and smart phones, participants can join from a PC, Mac, iOS or Android device.
ASCA Member School Councils participate in the policy setting process of the Association by reviewing the Proposed Advocacy Resolutions submitted for consideration (discussion and voting on) at the AGM.
It is very important that school council members understand, review and discuss, determining support or disapproval of the resolutions proposed, to provide voting direction to the parent voting delegate attending the AGM.
Important – if additional information or clarification is required – please CONTACT THE SPONSOR of the resolution by email as provided. Resources/references are also indicated as applicable.
School councils seeking to understand the impact of any proposed resolution to their students, school or division are encouraged to talk to the resolution sponsors, their local trustee, principal, or the secretary treasurer where funding is involved.
The business meeting starts early, and continues until all resolutions proposed for policy are debated and voted upon, as well as election of the new governing Board.
Don't miss an opportunity to be involved, to be heard, and make a difference in public education.
Voting is your Voice
Parents on school council shape the future of Alberta's public education system with input through advocacy resolutions and voting at the ASCA AGM.
Resolutions passed into policy at the AGM form the association perspective as presented to Alberta government and organizations in provincial education.
All school councils with current ASCA membership are eligible to submit Proposed Advocacy Resolutions and send parent representatives to vote on behalf of the school council at the ASCA Annual General Meeting.
Please contact the ASCA office if you are uncertain as to your school councils’ current membership status.
